I have a stainless Cutter prop 13 x 13˝ and all is well. I changed from a nibrial after it had a meeting with the bottom of the boat ramp (not me driving
I have seen some posts where some people have not been happy with the finish/quality of Cutter props but mine is just fine. Try to inspect the prop before you purchase. They are teamed up with 6 boat manufactures now as well, which I see as a positive.
They also have this on there web site:
"Try one on your boat. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your new propeller, please contact us and we will arrange for a product exchange or refund. Our goal is to have people like you, using our propeller, and excited to tell someone else about it!" http://www.cutterprops.com
Pluses for stainless:
Stronger and more durable.
Better performance (very subjective).
Looks better to most people.
Minus for stainless:
Claims of stainless sometimes being to strong when hitting something, and causing prop shaft to go out of alignment. (my thought is if you hit something that hard, you're gonna break something no matter what prop you've got)
Another note: I believe my boat dealer orders all there boats with Cutter Stainless props now. It is a Supra/Moomba dealer.
